Atlanta-based developer Wood Partners has unwrapped the 5550, a new residential-retail complex near the Hollywood/Western Metro station.

Named for its location at 5550 Hollywood Boulevard, the $100-million project consists of a six-story building featuring 280 apartments and roughly 12,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Los Angeles-based Urban Architecture Lab designed the podium-type complex, which is clad with a combination of brick veneer and plaster.  The new construction also incorporates the facade of Falcon Studios, a two-story brick structure built in the 1920s.  The roof level of the historic building will provide amenity space for future residents.

The mixed-use complex represents a migration of Hollywood's development boom east across the 101 freeway, joining similar projects on Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue.

In Inglewood, a local developer has filed plans to construct townhomes just west of La Brea Avenue. The proposed development, slated for an L-shaped property at 113-133 W. Plymouth Street, would replace 11 existing single-family residences with 20 three-story townhomes above a basement parking garage.
